Since making the full time move to using Linux (Fedora) from Windows, I've found the migration fairly easy and haven't had much disruption in how I do my work.
However, there are some games I like to play such as Football Manager and some older games which rely on 3D rendering (either software or hardware). At the moment I have a VirtualBox VM running Windows XP and 95% of the games I've installed on this have failed to run due to problems with the graphics card (the virtual graphics card).
What I would like to do is get the VM to use the laptop's actual physical graphics card directly, or something similar. I know there is a performance issue, but most of the games I play are over 5 years old and I'm not bothered about graphic quality etc. I just want it to work.
I dont have to use VirtualBox, it's just I used it because I'm used to it. If VMWare or another Virtualisation technology are better options than VirtualBox then I will use them.
